Sampling/Christian Marclay

April 11-July 28, 2002

Since the 1970s, Swiss-American sound and visual artist Christian Marclay has explored the intimate relationship between the visual record and recorded sound through cutting, collage, and juxtaposition. In addition to Video Quartet (2002) — a newly commissioned four-channel video collage of found footage — this exhibition also features Marclay's 1989 installation Tape Fall and the West Coast premiere of Up and Out (1998) a feature film project.

Sampling/Christian Marclay is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Support for this exhibition has been generously provided by The James Family Foundation. Hotel sponsor: The Argent Hotel.
